"A hilarious memoir . . . David Sedaris fans, this one's for you." -- Daryl Chen, Glamour "Old-fashioned retirement at age twenty-eight? Funny -- sure. But Rothman is also riveting, friendly, and the good kind of sad." -- Sarah Vowell, author of Assassination Vacation "This book, which has a pretty silly premise, quickly and thoroughly becomes something much more: it's actually emotionally involving, and even profound. It's very funny, because Rothman is always very funny, but it's also truly moving, and, at its core, unspeakably sad. That's not to say it isn't fun to read. It is. It is!" -- Dave Eggers "Rothman's observations are insightful and clever -- a humorous, Generation X perspective on what baby boomers are about to discover." -- Rocky Mountain News "It's hilarious. It's one of the best books I've read. If you're looking for a book, get this one." -- Howard Stern "[Rothman] has produced a warm, wry bit of reportage. . . . His descriptions of the loneliness, the cliquishness, the slow-motion desperation of the place ring true and bittersweet." -- Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times Book Review "A hilarious account of moving into a Florida retirement community at age twenty-eight. . . . Rodney Rothman's premise is so silly and fetching . . . sections had me hooting so hard that I thought the neighbors would be over to check on me." -- Karen Long, The Plain Dealer (Cleveland) "A hilarious reminder that everybody was young once . . . everyone except Rodney." -- Jon Stewart
